Trolleys Pay for Themselves With Tap Card

Trolleys Pay for Themselves With Tap Card

Editor, Re: “Trolleys to Run on Summer Weekends,” in the May 30 edition. That sounds great, but why not have a tap card system like they do in LA County, which is a loadable card of stored value and a certain amount is deducted each time you tap your card on the fare box. It’s […]

One is that though much of a rising volume of complaints stems from disturbances involving homeless people, standard law enforcement on its own will not solve the problem. The other is that […]

Secret Cash Stashed Offshore

Secret Cash Stashed Offshore

Getting its name from the similarity it has in size and shape to the silver dollar, it is the Pacific sand dollar (Dendraster excentricus). Colored in shades of […]

 Dual at Dawn

Dual at Dawn

What’s going on at Pimco? At a place well known for bonds, there appears to be a broken bond between our native sons, Bill and Mohamed. Could they really be breaking up?  It’s too squirrelly to consider. Speaking of squirrelly things, I’ve never seen squirrels in Laguna. That’s good because squirrels don’t like me.  I’m […]
